Where is the thermostat located

The thermostat is located on a housing on the engine block, follow the lower radiator hose towards the engine and you will see the housing, remove the 10mm nuts and the housing, the thermostat is inside, don't forget to drain the coolant first.

Location of thermostat for 2007g6

You will loose all the coolant when you remove the thermostat. We use a vacuum coolant fill device to remove the air from the cooling system and **** new coolant back in. I don't expect you have this so you will have to improvise. Fill coolant into block through upper radiator hose at radiator.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

I need the locations of thermostats

Not quite sure when you say thermostat"s". or what size engine you have but what I went on and did was give you the location of the cooling system thermostat for the most common engine for a Trailblazer for your year (4.2 liter). If this is the one, just letting you know that that thermostat comes as a complete unit water outlet and thermostat together. they don't sell it separate. Hope this is what you were looking for and I hope this helps.

I wan to replace the coolant thermast, bu I don't know where the coolant thermastat is located.

if you want to replace your thermostat for the coolent it is located off the upper hose from the radiator going into the top of the motor. you will have to remove the hose from the housing then remove the housing itself and the thermostat will be sitting right there on top. make sure you remember whitch way its faceing so when you replace it you dont sit it down backwards or upsidedown.. also its a good idea to disconnect the battery because you should have ground wires running to the housing. make sure you have the proper gaskett also.. if you need to see it done first go to youtube videos and just type in changing thermostat there are alot of good videos that should help you out... i hope this helps get you going in the right direction..

Hi im trying to find out if my grand prix has a thermostat .not sure if it does i thought maybe it might be built in

all vehicles have thermostats, the location differs from vehicle to vehicle, looking up the information specific to your car will help, using the internet or shop manuals to find the year of car, engine, transmission, and then finding an exploded diagram of your motor will help you find the thermostat on your car, but be careful, some thermostats are very hard to replace

Trying to replace thermostat

Reasonably certain that you have to remove the primary drive wheel, which at least on American Saabs is the front passenger-side wheel. The thermostat housing is hiding behind it. You should be able to see it from above, but it's inaccessible except through the wheel well.
Haynes makes an excellent manual with a complete step-by-step walk-through for replacing the thermostat, because I believe it's fairly extensive on this motor.
